: disturbing news about the united states education system. math, reading, science, american teenagers are walking behind their peers in asia and in europe. so what is going wrong here? twenty now is mark schneider, and a former commissioner on the national center and mark, thanks for joining me today. this is the u.s. world education drinking. and in math, u.s. students ranked 31st down from 25 and 2009. does this concern you? >> not as much as you might think. the fall of our education system is all overstated. sure, we should be doing better, but the fact of the matter is the numbers don't tell us anything about the economic future of the united states and where we are going or even what to do about it. gerri: i have plenty of stats for that. but let me show you this. thirty-five countries scored higher, science, 27 scored higher, reading, 23 scored higher. lately some of the countries that are ahead of us. vietnam, ireland, poland, at the end of the day, if you don't agree with the numbers, do they tell a broad story that is basically accurate? >> well, in general, it's a legitimat
. if you want to get ahead in our country is through education. so many people in our big cities are being short changed by a bad school system. we want to make it better through competition, by giving every kid the choice. part of our economic freedom zones is that federal money that comes to detroit isn't going to the school system directly but to the kid and their parents and each parent will decide which school they want to take their money to. >> it's a plan that touches regulation and education as well. >> absolutely. >> obama care, all over the news recent obviously for obvious reasons. we had heard this week that fox news was reporting that senator harry reid exempted some of his staff from signing up for obama care. have you signed up and how was that experience for you? >> don't get me started. i'm still in a bad mood from doing that. i spent two hours on wednesday doing it. i had all of my information in, all of my most personal information so i hope they're not hacking into this from all over the country. i put all my information in and then i pushed the button to sign up for a
the people at the lower end of the educational distribution. those people need jobs and deserve jobs. unfortunately for the only way to solve the problem is not simply to legislate higher wages if we could do that you could ask, why don't we legislate wages that are $90 an hour instead of nine are ten or $15 an hour. obviouy we know why we don't do that. that would be impractical, and we would lose jobs at an enormous rate if we did something like that. you can't do that. what you have to do is reform the educational system, make sure that these people have the skills that are necessary to compete in a modern economy. melissa: and do what? and do what? i want to run at a time. reck we channel them? are there enoogh jobs fixing the robots, fixing the automated checkout machines, programming them. is there the same number of jobs doing new things to replace the jobs that are being made obsolete by computers and robots and drowns and everything else? >> absolutely. go back to 2007. the and upon the rate was just over 4%. so all of those people that i talked about wd the move from manufa
education. that is the reality that the me millennial space. and no matter what people want to call obama or his policies if you don't see upward mobility, you can't have it on the watergate the boy or girl you want to build something for your own future if you want a family. that is reality for millennialist. >> politically it is interesting. there's a great cause of concern because obama won this group by massive majority and they thought that because he could relate to them, that they would be able to lock in this generation is a durable democratic voting majority going into the future. because if you could get them young, that is a part of their identity for the rest of their lives. these numbers is crushing these kids dreams. lou: the gap is larger across the entire force. >> one other thing that i think that the millennialist are is stupid and we can characterize this. but i don't think they are, i think they have caught on, and they have seen that there is no future and there is nothing happening and they have begun to realize that they have no part of that deal and they realize th
of the deficits be cut and there is a debate right now as you know between education defense and for her, unemployment benefits is important. we need to pass the budget either way. whether this is included or not. >> one way or the other you are right about that. but i wasn't joking about the good quality and the fact that republicans and democrats respect you. it is still the hatfield and mccoy's in washington and i'm wondering how this president is a good example of that. will this be the way it's going to be for the next three years? the president is a friend of yours, does it come up like health care is a disaster, it might get better and it might not, but we have a lot of people paying a lot more with premiums and we have 5 million fewer with insurance and when this thing started. so this is what it's going to be. three years of this. >> two different points he made. one is can they get together to do a budget plan. i think that they are both well-respected and smart. and i think that they can split the difference and come in at a couple hundred million over the next two years and g
and then over time you're supposed to gain the skills and education to move out and do something else. the problem is, the very few people who get stuck as a career in minimum wage job, that is the problem we should be addressing how to train those people and get them skills and get them @oving somewhere else, not forcing walmart to have a hire minimum wage so it helps fewer people get starred on their careers. where did i go wrong with that, jonathan? >> i think you're right on the money, melissa. minimum wage causes unemployment. that is not my judgement. that is the judgement of the labor department in 1938. when first minimum wage was first enacted. many prominent economist. the minimum wage is discrimination. it is discrimination exactly what sabrina and you pointed out, low-skilled workers who need the first job. only 4% of the people making minimum wage are supporting a family full time and most of those individuals are able. whether it is at walmart or mcdonald's or anywhere else, move up the ladder. you have 40% of the mcdonald's ceos started making minimum wage. i believe so
is a bartender while your parents or you paid $80,000 for an education. that's the reality the millennials face, lou. i said this in the break. no matter what people want to call obama or his policies or what's going on, it's the results and the current results we're dealing with. if you don't see upward mobility, you can't have the apartment you want, date the boy or girl you want or build something for your own future if you want a family. that's reality for millennials. >> politically these numbers are interesting. they cause great cause for concern. obama won this group, 29 and under, by massive majorities. they thought because obama is so hip and cool and the jay z connection and wearing the ipod, they would be able to lock in this generation as a democratic voting majority. if you can get them young and usually that's their voting identity for the rest of theirs lives. they realize the debt is going to be on them. the cost of obama care is going to be on them. they're saying we don't necessarily want any part of this. this is not what we signed up for. >> millennials identifying by a very

, where is all about? the billions and trillions that we are spending on education and not having any effect. in government isn't working. but we don't entrust how to be in a in a new economic society and that scott said, this has been going on for decades. gerri: to your point, income inequality is growing. 1992, the share of income by the top 5% in 2002, comparing and contrasting. that is not a big change. >> i think that the preponderance of evidence is that income is at the top half versus everyone else over the last two decades. whether that's a problem or not, it is completely unclear when you actually read all of the research that is done on it. and the other point i would make is that within the bottom 80%, the vast majority of the american population, income inequality has grown since the 1980s and in a lot of ways, that is the part that maybe we would be worried about. >> let's talk about one thing that has changed. after the 50s and 60s, when we had productivity, we have the most productive workers in the country and in the world. and in those days productivity was shared b
at the numbers, it's startling. we spend $15,000 per every student in this country on education and that's more than every single country in the developed world and japan beat us in the international ranking that you mentioned and we're throwing money at the problem. it's not the lack of spending, it's the character of the spending. it's not trickling down to the classroom, it's federal government regulation and it should be a state-run education should belong to the state and no child left behind. it usurps a lot of power from the states and that to me that's the problem not relegating to the states. stuart: you'd get rid of it-- not all of it, but some of the bureaucracy because that's where the money is flowing, the administrators of the schools and all kind of people backing them up, the bureaucracy. you'd get rid of that. >> yes. stuart: but can you? kayleigh, you can't, you can't do that. i mean, the unions are so firmly entrenched and there's a big vote in favor of those unions. in favor of teachers, and i don't know if you can get around that? >> yeah, and i think you hit the nail on th

, these state budgets like illinois have a choice to make, they will either spend money on education or spend money fulfilling the promises that couldn't be kept -- can't be kept, at the end of the day there is only so much money to go around, we tried to take out more bonds but as a nation our credit ratings are going lower and lower, old way of doing things is not going to work, we have to make real sob o sober at choices, what is the other choice? simply to evice rate spending on roads and brings and education, we are to make the tough choices. neil: there a middle ground, i want to try to -- both of you, slowly bring it in, that is don't make a you know, 180 switch right now, but stagger this in move those with a pension into a 401(k). as much as companies provides not that it is instancetainious. but as things stan now, these unfunded obligations are so staggering no one, no one will be able to pay them promises or not. >> that is voluntary, sure that economy a good solution. neil: like i said. was not voluntary for them, it is we could do something to slowly bring them to this reality,

of what you do? savings and investments, isn't it? >> education is a major factor, whether you have good health insurance, able to control your own destiny. education is one of the biggest factors and we can't emphasize that in most. we focus on what you can do. individuals have a tremendous amount of power and determining their individual destinies and they are very practical, living within your means. dennis: let me point out a lot of emphasis lamenting the gap, nobody talking about don't get as many tattoos, don't buy as much gold jewelry. how about cutting back and saving. >> exactly, don't over leverage yourself. dennis: thank you. from bank cheryl: lets go to the floor of the new york stock exchange. senior vice president. just speaking within the last 20 minutes, anything you have heard from them that changes your opinion about the timing of the taper? >> no, it doesn't. he had to think mindset with them. more of a centrist. they are the three biggest hawks that fit inside the federal reserve system. unfortunately the matter what they say when it is working anymore or no
